Rare Beef Salad with Watermelon + Raw Zucchini Noodles

I love this style of food. It’s fast, fresh, light, and packs a punch. This salad has it all. It has crunch from the raw cucumber and garden radish, heat from the red chilli, sweetness from the watermelon, and all-important protein from the beef. A great way to stave off an afternoon sugar-craving meltdown. Enjoy! … Continue reading
